An agent who posed as a client paid P6,000 in exchange for the sexual services of one of the girls.

A friend who uses it tells me: “It’s good if you’re picky…

The syndicate has been recruiting girls from Caloocan, Malabon, Navotas and Tondo in Manila and keep in touch with them by getting their contact numbers, he added.
The NBI found out about the chat group following a sting at a Caloocan resort last Thursday, when agents from the NBI’s anti-human trafficking division rescued 17 girls aged 13 to 17 from a “swimming party” and arrested alleged pimps Glady Dulot, 29, and Cherry Ann Lacano, 30.
The girl and the pimp would share the payments equally.
Some of the girls said they had been “sold” in the past, NBI spokesman Ferdinand Lavin told reporters yesterday.
